Japan's recorded music market edges upwards

The recorded music industry in Japan saw its overall income across physical and digital rise 1.1% in the first half of 2015, according to MBW calculations. New stats from the RIAJ show that total digital income in the six months was up 5% year on year, to 22.9bn Yen (US $192m). Interestingly physical sales in this time period were up year-on-year, ever so slightly to 129.4bn Yen (2015): both were worth just over $1bn. Album downloads grew 14% to 4.73bn Yen ($40m), as streaming subscriptions leapt up 43% to 5.04bn Yen ($42m).
